Doing division when decimal numbers are involved is the same as doing divisions involving whole numbers, with a few extra steps to take care of the decimal point.

Either the number you are dividing into or the number you are dividing by, or both of them, may be a whole number or a decimal number. So, for example, you might want to do the following divisions:

• Example 1: 49.26457 Ã· 8
• Example 2: 2.601 Ã· 1.22
• Example 3: 678 Ã· 27.3

From these tracks it is possible to measure the foot length and the length of the stride.

Official language about informal carers is at variance with the way we normally talk about family life. How many children or young people who care â€“ for parents or other relatives â€“ would spontaneously label themselves a â€˜young carerâ€™? How many parents would describe their son or daughter in this way? How many people who frame census questions would have thought of including a question to find out, until â€˜young carerâ€™ became a category like â€˜disabilityâ€™ or â€˜ageâ€™ that censu

You have seen that the words used to label people who are seen as needing care can stigmatise them. By picking them out as unlike â€˜normalâ€™ people, people who do not need care, they can feel belittled, de-humanised and deprived of respect. But it is not just the labels like â€˜mentally handicappedâ€™, â€˜lunaticâ€™ or â€˜mentally illâ€™ that are at issue. â€˜Careâ€™ as a word is itself under attack:

The Lost Art of Finding Our Way
http://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674072824 Long before GPS, Google Earth, and global transit, humans traveled vast distances using only environmental clues and simple instruments.
